It's tough not to think of New York City when somebody mentions the United States of America. New York City is known around the world for its museums, skyscrapers, parks, and Broadway musicals. Located on the eastern coast of the continental United States, New York City is a 'melting pot' with about eight and a half million residents. To get the most out of New York City holidays it would help to spend at least a week in town. That would be enough time to see all the really big sites.
New York City never slows down. If weather isn't a consideration, any season of the year is good for a visit. Keep in mind, though, that New York winters are cold. Summers are hot, humid, and crowded particularly when the Yankees and Mets are playing. If cheaper New York City holidays are a priority then it would be best to visit in the winter, anytime between December and March. New York City is divided into five boroughs: Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. They are all worth seeing, but Manhattan is the financial centre of the city and it's packed with sights.
New York City has sights that are almost too numerous to mention. The Statue of Liberty is the iconic symbol of the United States. Central Park is right in the middle of midtown Manhattan and covers more than 800 acres. The Empire State Building was completed in 1930 and has a high speed elevator to transport visitors up to the observation level on the 86th floor. New York City holidays should include a visit to Times Square at the corner of Broadway and 7th Avenue. It's likely the busiest intersection in the city, and with its raw energy and neon billboards it's hard to miss.
